I can not stop looking at this piece. One finds something new everytime they see it. The viewer is drawn in both by the dream like quality as well as the magical feel of it. One has to ponder if city below is just an illusion and will disappear once the water starts rippling more or if it will linger. Drawing the woman into its streets like a mother would hold out her open arms for a child.
The few colours used give a sense of an enchanted night, everything bathed in moon and star glow as if being caressed by the very heavens themselves. This is full of wonder, excitement, and anticipation. A standing ovation to the artist! Bravo!
The beauty, depth, and scope in this picture captured my attention immediately. This is a rare gem- mixing fantasy, sci-fi, and nature to create something that can relate to a vast spectrum of tastes; challenging the audience to find a higher meaning in this piece, and in themselves.
The contrast between a densely populated cityscape and the vast, unexplored final frontier beyond, highlights the immensity of our universe, alluding to the importance of human life and unity that many people stubbornly ignore.
The girl, with her enticing posture and bold blue dress, invites the attention and curiosity of the audience. At first, you may only see a city and the sky above, but as your eyes wander from the girls feet, your mind begins to open and see where this work finds it's name. "La Protectrice", or "The Protective" could refer to the girl; or is the surface of water a barrier protecting her? Who knows; that is why this work has such meaning and value to me. The questions being conjured by all these complex relationships heightens the minds awareness and intensifies the beauty and effectiveness of the artist's stunning depiction. The audience is free to decide their own meaning, only left with the euphoric sensation of new knowledge and self-discovery.
-Amazing work =creamymagique!
